"Paper Bag" as written by and Alison Elizabeth/gregory Goldfrapp....
No time to fuck
But you like the rush
And where would we be
Without sums
Deals we make
Brown paper bag
Makes for a hat
When it rains on
Your head mate
Cheers for that
When the world
Stops for snow
When you laugh
I'm inside
Your mouth
Sucking the sun
Baboons and birds
With the weight
Of you dear
I forgot

    Song Meaningfor me PERSONALLY, this song is about loving someone who's become a burden, and the allowances they're afforded because of this love.

    it seems like the relationship is lacking for her in some sense (no time to fuck) but for other reasons she remains (and where would we/be without sums/deals we make).

    the brown paper bag stuff speaks to the fact that he's either a cock-eyed optimist or foolishly resilient in the face of problems - specifically, what's lacking in their relationship. (brown paper bags as protection from rain = fail). she may be a little envious of this quality (cheers for that) but still regards it as being too naive, and ultimately, maladaptive.

    he is enamored with her, the true her, and she knows it (when you laugh i'm inside your mouth). this also expresses her profound wish for him to be happy. she takes stock in being a source of joy for him. she's poured herself into him to the detriment of all else (baboons and birds/sucking the sun/with the weight of you dear/i forgot).

    i tried to make this as general as possible, because i'm obviously using a relationship of my own to make sense of this song, as that's what it made me think of. additional interpretations welcome!
